Removing Hardness

Are the white stains in your bathtub and sinks or spots on your clean glassware driving you crazy? And are you suffering from dry, itchy skin or dealing with dry, lifeless hair? Most likely it's due to hard water, which can wreck havoc on both you and your home.

Water hardness is caused by Magnesium and Calcium.  And while these minerals are not health hazards, they can be a nuisance to you and your household and hardness is costing you money.

Effects of Hard Water

  • Film on glass shower doors, shower walls, bathtubs, sinks, and faucets;

  • Hair to feel sticky and look dull;

  • Laundered clothes to appear dingy and feel scratchy;

  • An increase in the amount of soap and detergent needed for cleaning;

  • A film of sticky soap curd on skin;

  • Irritated skin;

  • Plumbing and plumbing fixture failures.

Removing Hardness From Water

  1. Schedule a water test. First, you need to determine how hard your water is and then the total dissolved solids (TDS) present.

  2. Consult with an expert. Every well’s water is unique. So it’s important to consult with an expert when looking for water treatment equipment. Water issues are usually more complicated than what meets the eye.

  3. Install a softener salt based or salt-free directly to your water supply. Water softeners are designed to remove/reduced hard water minerals - Calcium and Magnesium.  And the amount of hardness in your water will determine the best softener for you, your home and family.

  4. Enjoy soft water! Enjoy smoother skin, cleaner dish and glassware, and stain-free bathtubs and sinks.

Iron and Manganese Removal

Iron and Manganese are common in San Diego County well water. 

Iron is not harmful to people or animals but due to it's ability for stain everything orange brown is it quite a nuisance. 

Manganese is a harmful contaminant if in concentrations above 50 parts per billion and above that level it is a serious health problem.  Manganese poisoning looks like Parkinson's Disease and there is no cure once you are exposed.

There are many new improved technologies for removing Iron and Manganese that offer more protection at a lower annual cost than old school methods from the past.

To Protect Your Health & Home

  1. Schedule a water test. First, you need to determine how much Iron and Manganese is in your water.  Then the pH of your water is a strong factor in choosing the best technology to address your Iron and Manganese issues. 

  2. San Diego Pure Water is an expert at chemical testing and analysis of well water in San Diego County.  We can determine the issue and design the best system for you.

Bacteria Remediation

Those on private well water should frequently test their well water to ensure illness-causing microbes are not present. If your well test positive for coliform bacteria, you can take steps to remove the bacteria.

 

What Bacteria is Found in Water?
Different types of bacteria can live in water. You cannot smell, taste or see bacteria in water, bacteria cannot be detected without performing a water test.

 

What is Coliform Bacteria in Well Water?
If your well tests positive for coliform bacteria, it may signal that disease-causing organisms (pathogens) could be in the water.

 

Total Coliforms, Fecal Coliforms, and E. Coli Testing
For an indication of the bacterial contamination conditions of your water supply, a total coliform bacteria test should be conducted. Testing is the only reliable way to know if your water is safe. Those on wells should test for coliform at least once per year and late spring or early summer is the best time to test. If a test comes back positive for bacteria, you should treat and test again.

 

Bacteria Remediation Solutions

To effectively address bacteria in your well there are multiple options available for you to choose from.  Options include Chlorine, Ozone, Hydrogen Peroxide, Ultraviolet Sanitation and in many cases a combination of options.  The main goal is to protect you and yours safely and effectively in the long term.

Salt Removal - Sodium & Chloride

 

Eliminating Salt from Well Water
Salt is a common substance that can leach into groundwater and drinking supplies from a variety of places causing well water contamination.

 

People often ask if they should remove sodium and chloride from their well water. While in San Diego County your water is likely to have a good amount of salt in it, there are cases where the level of sodium and chloride can affect taste, it can kill your plants or stunt their growth and sometimes it needs to be lowered because of a doctor-prescribed no-sodium diet.

 

How Much Salt Is Too Much For Well Water?
The most pristine water in San Diego County has less than 20 milligrams per liter, or parts per million, of sodium and 30 mg/L of chloride. On the other hand, in many wells the sodium and chloride levels are often higher than 300+ mg/L of sodium and 600+ mg/L of chloride.

Here one technology that is far more effective and economical than any other to remove sodium and chloride from your home water supply.

 

Reverse osmosis: In a reverse osmosis filtration system, water flows over and through a membrane, filtering out 98%+ of the none water molecules within the water, including sodium and chloride.  The treated water is stored in a storage tank until needed. This system can be installed at the point-of-use, such as at the kitchen sink, or could be used to treat the water for your whole house and/or your entire property.

In San Diego County most people need to remove sodium and chloride from their home’s water supply at least for drinking water, if you have concerns about these substances in your water, contact San Diego Pure Water for a consultation.

Uranium Filters

Since uranium is naturally occurring, people can be exposed to it through the soil, food, and drinking water. Elevated levels of uranium can cause health problems, so the EPA has set the maximum contaminant level at 15 pCi/L 0 for the presence of uranium in municipal water supplies. Discovering increased uranium in water may seem scary, but uranium and radioisotopes are fairly easy to remove from water.  

 

Decaying uranium produces radon, another dangerous contaminant. Elevated levels of uranium in drinking water may be due to higher naturally occurring levels or from uranium mining. Nuclear power plants also use uranium as a fuel, so those around the plants may be at a higher risk for exposure (for a current US map of these sites, see below). 

 

Symptoms of Uranium Exposure: Even though uranium has not been listed as a carcinogen, it can increase the risk of cancer. Elevated levels of uranium exposure have also been shown to cause kidney damage and kidney disease, particularly in those with lowered immune systems. Uranium can also accumulate in the bones in the way that radium does. 

 

Filtration Solutions for Uranium: Some say that whole house filtration methods are not needed for water contaminated with uranium, as showering in the water will not put people at risk, but this is questionable, in our opinion. We suggest that uranium be removed from the shower, bath, and wash water. It is better to be safe than sorry. 

 

Point-of-use systems should be used to filter drinking water. 

Uranium can be reduced by both cation or anion exchange filters, dependent upon its state. Reverse osmosis systems will reduce uranium by 95 to 98%. Activated alumina and water distillation can also be utilized.
